Event Idea: Build Your Own Burrito Bar

Whether you’re hosting a fiesta, a Cinco de Mayo party, or just a fun clubhouse gathering, a burrito bar is a fun way to serve dinner to your residents, and it scales easily for large groups.

Not sure what ingredients to serve? This site breaks everything down and gives great ideas for making a fantastic burrito bar (or taco bar if that’s more your style). And this site tells you how to keep your tortillas warm in a crock pot without drying them out.

When it comes to setting up your burrito bar, the display can set the tone of your whole event. Make your work do double-duty for you by being both food AND decoration. We have found some great (and inexpensive) ways to display all of your toppings to add that extra special touch for your residents.


If you want to get really creative, you could also serve your burrito INSIDE a mason jar! You can snag mason jars for less than $1 each online or at your local hardware store, and re-use them as glassware for your next party.
